What is the best way to setup bandwidth limiting/qos?

Hello, I am a gamer living in my apartment with a room mate who loves to download music 24/7 and a girlfriend who loves to watch netflix. Needless to say, every time I go to play a video game I get shitty ping and lots of lag. From what I've gathered, DD-WRT's QOS is ****, and Tomato is the way to go in 3rd party firmware. Help please?

  1. Your router may support QoS (probably at a basic level depending on the router, some are quite good), but yes Tomato does have very robust QoS features if your router can use the Tomato firmware. Here is a pretty good discussion of that: http://www.wi-fiplanet.com/tutorials/article.php/3800416/How-to-Manage-Traffic-Using-Tomato-and-QoS.htm
